Isaiah Whitehead has signed a multi-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets ahead of his first NBA Summer League game with the franchise on Saturday.
Announced late on Friday night, Whitehead is now officially a Net, joining Chris McCullough as the only two New York-natives to lace ’em up for the franchise.
Terms of the deal haven’t been disclosed, but the contact is thought to be a $500,000/year rookie minimum contract.
The ink has dried just hours before Isaiah will see his first NBA action when the Nets take on the reigning champion Cavaliers in the Las Vegas Summer League at 4:30 on NBA TV.
How’s that for an introduction to the League?
